Youth Commission

Welcome to the Seaboard Region Youth Commission!

Who are we?

We are comprised of representatives from each of the synagogue youth commissions in the Seaboard Region section of the Southeast/Seaboard District. In addition we have the Regional USY President, the Regional Director of Youth Activities, and several “ members at large.”

What do we do?

  • We write and maintain the Regional Youth Commission Handbook – which establishes policies and guidelines that our youth professional staff and lay leaders use when planning and executing our youth programs.
  • We hold regular meetings 2-3 times per year to share best practices and information useful to each synagogue youth program.
  • We are a resource for and offer advice to our member synagogue youth commissions.
  • We represent Seaboard Region Youth at the International level of USCJ.
  • We supervise the distribution of scholarship funds to our youth.
  • We hold periodic fundraising activities for our youth programs and scholarships.
